#57: Shadow Sight - E.J. Stevens (With Giveaway and Excerpt)

Some things are best left unseen...
Ivy Granger's second sight is finally giving her life purpose. Ivy and her best friend Jinx may not be raking in the dough, but their psychic detective agency pays the bills--most of the time. Their only worry is the boredom of a slow day and the occasional crazy client--until a demon walks through their door.
Demons are never a good sign...
A demon attorney representing the water fae? Stranger things have happened. And things are about to get very, very strange as a bloodthirsty nightmare hunts the city of Harborsmouth.
There's blood in the water...
Kelpies have a reputation for eating humans. Unfortunately, Kelpies are the clients. When an Unseelie faerie this evil stalks the waterways of your city, you have to make hard choices.
The lesser of two evils...

Excerpt: 
 Welcome to Harborsmouth, where monsters walk the streets unseen by humans…except those with second sight.
     Whether visiting our modern business district or exploring the cobblestone lanes of the Old Port quarter, please enjoy your stay.  When you return home, do tell your friends about our wonderful city—just leave out any supernatural details. 
     Don’t worry—most of our guests never experience anything unusual.  Otherworlders, such as faeries, vampires, and ghouls, are quite adept at hiding within the shadows.  Many are also skilled at erasing memories.  You may wake in the night screaming, but you won’t recall why.  Be glad that you don’t remember—you are one of the fortunate ones.
     If you do encounter something unnatural, we recommend the services of Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective.  Co-founder of Private Eye detective agency, Ivy Granger is a relatively new member of our small business community.  Her offices can be found on Water Street, in the heart of the Old Port. 
     Miss Granger has a remarkable ability to receive visions by the act of touching an object.  This skill is useful in her detective work, especially when locating lost items.  Whether you are looking for a lost brooch or missing persons, no job is too small for Ivy Granger—and she could certainly use the business.
     We can also provide, upon request, a list of highly skilled undertakers.  If you are in need of their services, then we also kindly direct you to Harborsmouth Cemetery Realty.  It’s never too early to contact them, since we have a booming “housing” market.  Demand is quite high for a local plot—there are always people dying for a place to stay.

My Opinion:
There were moments of the story I really liked and other parts I wasn't so fond of. I thought Ivy was cool, and her personality was pretty laid back for all she has to deal with. I couldn't imagine what it would be like if people actually experienced this stuff.... those far out there things were what I liked. I turned my nose to having so many creatures, and even ones I was sure I was pronouncing properly in my head. I know that sounds crazy, but I had creature overload. Lame reason to exit a story, and I didn't, which is how I ended up enjoying it and being glad for each creature. Maybe it was just too much going on at once instead. I don't know, but something didn't sit well with me in that area.....
But one man's meh is another's man's awesome, so I encourage you to check it out!

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
